While Neah Kah Nie hosted a tournament, Nestucca and Tillamook traveled to other tournaments in the region.
Nestucca, saw some success, winning the consolation round.
Tillamook had limited success in their tournament as well.
While Nestucca and Tillamook headed out of town for the weekend, Neah Kah Nie stayed home to host an eight team, all day tournament on Saturday.
The eight teams were divided into two groups:
With access to two gyms, each group was able to sail through group round robin play, which consisted of 2 sets per meet up. Although many teams saw mixed success, other teams such as Pilot Rock dominated group play. Pilot Rock would be the only team to make it through round robin without losing a set.
Host Neah Kah Nie would take two out of six sets in round robin play.
The second phase of the tournament saw the top two from each group in a championship battle, while the bottom two teams from each group fight in consolation matches.
Neah Kah Nie, having placed third in round robin, was relegated straight to the consolation bracket. They managed to beat out Clastkanie before facing Toledo. The Pirates weren't able to keep up, losing to Toledo, but placing 2nd in the Consolation Bracket.
The championship bracket saw, like the consolation bracket, two Group A teams fight for the 1-2 slots. Pilot Rock may have been the masters of the round robin section, their luck would run dry. Santiam was able to beat out Pilot Rock in the final, placing 1st overall in the tournament.
With Round Robin over,
Neah Kah Nie Volleyball hosted county rivals Nestucca last night in an early league match up.
Nestucca came out strong, taking an early lead against the Pirates. The Bobcats experience playing together showed. The team had played 6 games together prior to last night's match up. What didn't show, was signs of fatigue from playing the day before.
Nestucca dominated the first two sets, 25-16, 25-12. The Pirates weren't going to go down without a fight, though. With support from the crowd, the Pirates were able to test the confident Bobcats. The third set proved to not be an easy win for the Bobcats like the previous two sets. The score remained close, unlike the previous two, as Neah Kah Nie battled to stay alive.
Unfortunately, the Bobcats were able to pull away, winning the third set, clinching victory for the match up. Neah Kah Nie will get their chance to get revenge at the end of the month when they travel to Cloverdale to take on the Bobcats.
Both teams will be busy this weekend as they are both involved in local tournaments. Neah Kah Nie will be hosting a tournament at home, while Nestucca will be traveling to Molalla.
Neah Kah Nie High School Volleyball snagged their first win Tuesday night against City Christian.
It wasn't without a bit of an adventure, especially for traveling City Christian. The match was set to start at 6p, but due to travel delays for City Christian, the match did not begin until a bit after 7p. To make the game harder for the Lions, they played with 6 players with no substitutions available.
The delay didn't hamper appear to hamper either team. The first set between the Lions and Pirates was close, but ultimately won by Neah Kah Nie with a score of 25-19. The second set was very much like the first, a close, hard fought battle. The second set was won by Neah Kah Nie 25-20.
It wasn't until the third set that City Christian started to show fatigue. The Pirates took advantage of this, winning the third, and final, set 25-10.
Neah Kah Nie won the match 3-0.
Thursday, September 6th -- 6p, Neah Kah Nie hosts Nestucca
Saturday, September 8th -- All Day Tournament hosted by Neah Kah Nie
